The field of Artificial Intelligence stands poised to make great leaps in emulating human intelligence. The development of a way to acquire and use common sense is the key to this advancement. This thesis describes the design and construction of ComicKit, a tool for acquiring story scripts for a common sense knowledge base. ComicKit's core mechanism is dragging and dropping icons into the panels of a comic. As the user creates a comic, ComicKit makes common sense suggestions for the story. ComicKit follows on the successful model of Open Mind Common Sense, a web-based activity that thousands of people around the world contributed bits of common sense knowledge to. It is hoped that many people will contribute a few hundred thousand stories through ComicKit, and build a large corpus of common sense story knowledge.
